Daily Zohar # 2321 – Vayigash – The earth is full of Your possessions
“יְהוָה–בְּחָכְמָה יָסַד-אָרֶץ; כּוֹנֵן שָׁמַיִם, בִּתְבוּנָה”
“YHVH by wisdom founded the earth, By understanding He established the heavens”
The world was created with the control of the Left column, which is Chokmah (wisdom), without Chassadim. The Creator saw that the world can not stay in existence until he created the Torah that is called Zeir Anpin and the aspect of the central column that unifies Right and Left columns. Then Chokmah revealed its light in the world through Zeir Anpin.
The Light of Chokmah is what sustains the entire existence. Binah (understanding) is the vessel that delivers the light of Chokmah to the world.
“מָה-רַבּוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ, יְהוָה– כֻּלָּם, בְּחָכְמָה עָשִׂיתָ;
מָלְאָה הָאָרֶץ, קִנְיָנֶךָ”
“How many are Your works, YHVH! In wisdom You have made them all; The earth is full of Your possessions.”
The Light of Chokmah is concealed and is revealed when it is manifested in this world. The ‘breath’ of YHVH keeps the entire existence in its path. The sages teach us that the Holy One Blessed be He, renews the entire creation in every moment of life. That is why everything is in movement, even the hardest elements. The vast space inside every atom holds in it the force that controls its movement. If the Creator decides to let go of his creation everything would immediately cease to exist. The Torah is the channel of the Light of Chokmah and the more we study and follow it, we bring more life to the world and if God-forbid, the Torah is removed from the world, the world would crash immediately into nothing.
Many people still hold to the thought that the Creator is far and away and need to make ‘trips’ to this world to check on us, deliver judgment or rewards.
If one understands that everything he considers as his own is just a temporary deposit to be used for spiritual work then he would feel free and walk strong on the path of righteousness.
Every spec of energy that we receive is only to give us opportunity to transform it into positive action to benefit our soul. Even the richest person in the world can’t take his gold and diamonds with him to heavens because out of this world it has no value. The money we have and other ‘gifts’ is to share and do good in this temporary life. Only our good deeds transform into energy that is registered with our soul even after passing from this world and earn us merits for the time of the Resurrection.
